More than £3.5m for repairs to collapsed Matlock flood wall

The Environment Agency (EA) has pledged between £3.5m to £5m to restore the flood protection to Matlock - and we're delighted to be able to work with our partners at the EA and Derbyshire County Council on this important project.

This will benefit over 50 homes and businesses by reinstating the River Derwent flood defences.

Preparatory work is expected to start in early June and, while options are still being assessed, it is likely this will involve temporary alterations to Matlock Bridge to reinstate 2-way traffic for a period.

These essential works will pave the way for the main construction work due to begin in summer to replace the flood wall behind businesses in Crown Square, Matlock that collapsed after this year’s February storms.
